4-H is an informal, practical educational program for youth where there's fun in learning and learning is fun! The Arizona 4-H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults.
4-H is for all youth - from the farm, to the suburbs, to the city, 4-H serves youth from all backgrounds and interests. It reaches both girls and boys through 4-H clubs, special-interest groups and short-term projects, school-age child care, individual and family learning & mentoring, camping, and school enrichment. 4-H offers membership without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, disability or handicap.
La Paz County has 8 4-H clubs located across the County. Please contact Emmanuel Munoz or Debbie Pettigrew at the La Paz Co/ Colorado River Indian Tribes Extension Office 928-669-9843 for questions regarding club meeting dates or times.
